There needs to me more wearable LEGO accessories. Show everyone your LEGO love away from your building table with a minifig hair barrette (hair clip). This easy to do project can be made in about 30 minutes (depending on your glue/epoxy) and can be customized to no end.
The LEGO Store near me had a huge bin with all kinds of parts to create your own minifig, or you could use a specialty ready-made minifig from a set, or a LEGO keychain with the pin removed
LEGO purists beware: Minifigs were harmed in making this idea!
barrette or hair clip (3-pack at Dollar Store)
|Steps to make your own minifig barrettes:|
sand and score hair clip and back of minifig to ensure adhesion
epoxy legs to torso and head accessory to head (optional: leave head and arm able to swivel)
epoxy is messy, protect your work surface with newspaper
use 2-part epoxy to affix back of minifig to scored portion of hair clip
I used slow-set epoxy, so I let mine set overnight
